M-I SWACO offers a range of chemical products formulated to reduce the coefficient of friction (COF) of drilling
fluids, helping you minimize torque and drag, reduce stuck pipe risk, and increase ROP.
This brine lubricant is a nonsulfur surfactant blend developed for use in drilling fluids and brines to
decrease the coefficient of friction, thus reducing torque and drag.
This primary lubricant for the HydraGlyde water-base drilling
fluid system reduces torque and drag on the drillstring and is rated to 350 degF [176.7 degC].
This lubricant reduces the COF in synthetic- and oil-base drilling fluids, thereby reducing torque, drag,
and differential sticking potential.
This oil-soluble additive is specifically engineered for use in all invert-emulsion drilling fluids to
decrease the COF.
In field applications, this lubricant has reduced friction coefficients up to 35%.
By minimizing the possibility of differential sticking, this lubricant is advantageous in extended-reach,
deviated, and horizontal wells.
This lubricant can help reduce rotary torque readings by as much as 33%.
This agent reduces the risk of differential sticking by lowering the filtercake thickness, reducing the COF
of the filtercake, and minimizing the yield strength of the cake.
Imparting lubricity and reducing the COF between the drillstring and wallcake, this lubricant minimizes bit
balling and reduces torque and drag.
This lubricant reduces COF by up to 45%.
Acceptable for most situations specifying a low-toxicity lubricant, this lubricant is especially useful for
preventing stick/slip when sliding without rotation.
Containing no hydrocarbons, this lubricant lowers torque and drag in the wellbore.
This lubricant is specifically designed for use in freshwater, seawater, and brine applications.
Compatible for offshore use, this lubricant contains no hydrocarbons and features a unique wettability
characteristic that lowers the potential for BHA accretion.
This unique lubricant does not foam, grease, or emulsify in high-pH silicate environments.
Designed for use in the SILDRIL silicate-base drilling fluid system, this agent is proved to reduce
friction coefficients by as much as 35%.
This lubricant reduces the COF on metal-to-metal contact areas.
